Great Selection of wine – Love the suprisingly huge wine list here. Many choices by the glass! We had a great office party, and the staff was very accomodating. I hope they get valet soon, since it's going to be winter!
Grilled Egggplant From Paradise! – Yesterday was our second trip to Enoteca, and the specials were great. We had this Grilled eggplant, marinated in fresh garlic Olive oil and Parsley served with a side of goatcheese, toasted homemade bread and the thinnest Prosciutto, almost like a build your own crostini thing. The resulting combination was stellar! You know I've had eggplant a million ways and it often just isn't good, but this really changed my outlook! The server suggested this crisp white wine from southern Italy that cut through the myriad of flavors...
The best thing: that the food comes out in no particular order, so it's perfect for a long relaxed evening. This place is not where you sit down, shove down food and get the bill to rush out to a movie. They encourage you to share the food, and have a relaxed evening, a novel concept on a friday night in Chicago!
Like in Rome! – What a surprise we found in this little place on west division, a simple menu just like the places we visited and ate in when we were in Italy. The food was Simple but delicious, the bar was comfortale and laid back and not pretentious. The very large wine selection (I believe 50 by the glass) impressed me. Wine from all wine regions , not just italy.
There were many large groups dining and I believe the menu and atmosphere really lends itself to that. We had this Bruschetta "Flight" in which we oicked 4 different kinds out of 20 possible ones. The server Megan was quite knowledgeable and not overbearing. I can't wait for my next gettogether to book it here!
